nuclear by just saying things like all options are on the table or -- >> isn't that what mitt romney said, all options are on the table? >> mitt romney is not the president of the united states. the president of the united states should be communicating he will take military action. >> no person says we are going to bomb you. george w. bush said all options are on the table. >> i remember they did that with ronald reagan. he was pretty successful. reagan said he was going to take military action and pointed missiles and made it clear. >> so reagan said all options are on the table plenty of times. >> this was a long time ago when bush was dealing with iran. iran was five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten years away from becoming nuclear. iran now could be a month away, two months away, two years away. under president obama iran has by three times increased the uranium and made it much more enriched than it was originally. that's a massive change in a short period of time. of course obama has a bad history of begging to negotiate. wrote a letter to the ayatollah six months ago wanting to talk
